be returned to the general fund? >> so basically, if it we have any revenue beyond what's required to get us through year end, at the year end, in the year-end close process, the controller will adjust downward the transfer from the general fund into the hospitals. so each year, the general fund is kind of on the margin that comes in and fills the gap. if we can make that gap smaller, they'll just give us less general fund at the end of the year. and that will fall back into the pot of general fund that's available for appropriation through the budget process. >> supervisor wiener: for any use. >> exactly. >> supervisor wiener: presumably had this 10 million let's say come in last week your supplemental, you would be reduced that you're requesting would have been reduced by 10 million. >> that's correct. >> supervisor wiener: and then in terms of the sources for the supplemental, just to be clear -- a bunch of this money is really internal dph money that we're allocating, right? >> that's correct. so of the $38.7 million of total revenue, all except about $13 million of that is internal dph

a $1.7 billion operation including san francisco general hospital and laguna hospital and extensive networks of primary care and substance abuse services. of our 1 had the $7 billion about 4 hundred and 50 million is city general fund subsidy for the 2013 focus year and the other is state and federal revenue. so as barbara said we have a large counter year deficit in the controls 6 month report it is $14.9 million and i'll let you know we've been working hard since the six months report to bring that number down and we've brought that down somewhat although your financial position is we're a significant draw on the city's if you believed just to support our operations in the current year. in terms of what's causing the deficit there's a number of things by the 4 categories we've got a instructional we face rapid cost inflammation that drives our costs up and we're facing continued state and federal revenue reductions and as part of our general operations weakness in the growth of our partial revenues throughout the system. again from the controllers 6 month report we have a 49 point

it in the budget, we're here asking you for general fund. >> supervisor wiener: of that 45 -- i'm talking after this fiscal year, the ongoing structural defers, 45 million -- deficit, 45 million, how much do you anticipate needing all of that to be filled from the general fund? or are there -- i assume there are other revenues that are going to cover a portion of that. so my fundamental question is the structural deficit, where the general fund may need to step in, year after year after year, what do you anticipate that number to be? >> so a couple of answers to that question. in the five year financial plan for the city, there's a projection that about $38 million of that structural problem is an ongoing issue for the general fund. however, as you suggest, the amount of that, that is required from the general fund, depends on how well we can do in our revenues. so for example, if we are able to get state and federal approval for enhanced payments for our managed care program, we can offset that amount. if we're able to be successful under the transition to healthcare reform in retaining medi-c

it be the airport, the retirement system, you know, the general fund investment pool, various places. san francisco lost millions of dollars due to libor fraud. and anything other than an aggressive response to get every nickel of that back is not worthy of the city and county of san francisco. colleagues, we were all here one month ago today to discuss the city's efforts to cut wages for some of the city's lowest paid job classes, classes disproportion eely occupied by men and people of color. i think that we thoroughly addressed that issue a month ago, with the exception of the amount of city resources, staff time, and expenditures to pursue those cuts. and i'm talking about multiple staff at dhr, calling jurisdictions all over the region to get data on 45 classes, obviously discussions with the mayor's office, legal strategies in the city attorney's office, fighting, you know, the big, you know, sciu purple union, and to dut these wages. -- cut these wages. all of these resources and do you know what the san francisco examiner reported as the savings of the city's proposal to cut those 45 classi

that we maintain a separate harbor fund it's separate from the city's general fund. we've done analysis over time to look at property taxes and the cost of city services on port property. there's a bit of a gap. there's some sources that are urban leashed and don't generate tax precedes. and there's a cost of providing city services in that budget. and we try and track that over time. there's a general prim the harbors shouldn't subsidize or excuse me. the general fund shouldn't subsidize those services. the improvements to piers and seismic upgrades there in the capital fund also like along with historic properties listed on the national register. so as we are thinking about forming districts along the port property and the first proposed districts will likely be considered in 2014 so we're a ways away from requesting the styrofoam a districts. there would be a policy framework everybody sort of accepted there would be community oversight but those structures don't exist so we're going to propose local districts to answer those issues. there are some just a few minutes properties whe

15 members and their rotating. and as with other things at the un, these rotations are generally speaking not pretentious because they just rotate on the completely fixed, kind of geographic basis. there is an order. there is not as much fighting as you think there might be at a. so it is important that we in the stand that we do actually require a vote, not just of the key 5, but the supermajority of the 15 members of that number in order to agree for a security council action to go forward. so it is not just a case of what the key 5 one. they have the ability to block everything, but they don't have the ability to like everything they make happen. >> host: what does the p stand for? >> guest: permanence. quite possibly the most jargonized -- it makes the department of defense look clear by comparison. >> host: what is the effectiveness -- what is the general assembly and is it effective? >> guest: well, the general assembly is the meeting place of all the nations, and so everybody has one vote, everybody has a voice. you see this every year when the world leaders lined up at th

about 29 million plus any updated revenue from the nine month report would be returned to the general fund so it's in some ways possibly going to cover the potential deficit of the general fund that we're dealing with today? >> yeah. if these payments were to come in, it would reduce the amount of general fund needed for the department. and i don't want to -- i want to be careful not to overset expectations because these are dollars that we don't have in our hands, and we've only really got three months left of the fiscal year. but, absolutely, if they do come in that would reduce our general fund draw, and we would be very happy if that was the case. >> supervisor mar: and i'm appreciative of supervisor wiener's questions about the structural problem since 2009. in the budget and legislative analyst report on page 8, mr. rose and his staff make reference to the process that the health commission is going to go through within the next two months to have public hearings on suggestions and policy directions for the the department so that we can correct the structural deficit for the fut

generous. also to this budget, can meet the 911 thousand dollars that was originally planned for this. i heard the talk about restorative practices, but i feel like they were trying to do it on a shoe string budget. i would like to make an amendment that we allocate up to so as you know, this is an expensive endeavor. it is very expensive to try to ship around. it is changing the culture of our schools. we're on the tip right now of doing that. i think we wanted to see it actualized that these additional funds -- not a lot of money -- 43,430 extra to this budget. so i'd like to make the amendment that we bring up the total funding of the restorative practices to 911 thousand. >> you have made a motion. >> yes. i have. >> we have a second. now there is a motion on the floor for an amendment to the budget. so just to state it clearly, you are proposing that we add another 43,000 to the restorative budget. >> from where? >> it'd be helpful to know from where. >> i would take that from the reserve. so the reserve would be minus 43,430 dollars. >> it's possibly an unfair question, but

before you today reached out to all city departments, enterprise and general fund and sought to seek what their it needs were over the next five years. so, it's much more expansive than the earlier version. the current plan had descriptions of the it, each of the initiatives that were more for the rationale and anticipated results by the proposed plan, dives a little deeper as the supervisor mentioned earlier. gets more detailed project budgets, includes timelines, and then provides a status on current projects. and then lastly, the financial strategy portion of the plan has been more refined with some additional options added for use of one-time sources of funding as well as looking at new pre-planning funding being available for projects. there were three main guiding priorities for development of the itt plan. innovation, sustainability and resilience. we talk a lot about whether innovation in and of itself should be part of the ict plan and decided whether innovation needed to be looked at across every it project we do in the city and wasn't so much a goal as it was, and i approach ho

on this revised -- the revision that we have a general infrastructure increase of 45,000 which wasn't on our budget, on the budget that we received as a committee as a whole so i don't know. i saw the explanation, but in my mind, we were just taking it from the reserve. this money which is newly added in to our budget today or yesterday -- 45,000 dollars. does that not cover the amount we were taking to restorative practices? >> i could see the general explanation of general infrastructure -- maybe just give us the two sentence explanation. >> commissioners, as we all know, the funds are increasing the number of programs are increasing, the programs themselves are increasing and so are the evaluation needs so this is to expands our evaluation needs to continue our program to the city and to the board. >> we didn't do that before? my point is that at the committee as a whole last tuesday, that dollar amount is not in here so i believe we probably still have that need so we were going to fund it from somewhere. yes? that is my assumption -- that we were going to get it somewhere. so i ho

million request while it is true that the bulk of the revenues are not coming from the general fund, they're coming from within the department, supervisors, if those funds did not -- were not needed, if there was not this deficit in salaries and overtime, then those revenues would cause the general fund to have -- to need less general fund in next year's budget. so it's -- the bottom line is this is a deficit. and fortunately, there are revenues that can help pay for this. but if they didn't have the deficit, those revenues would fund next year's budget. on page 4 of our report we pointed out the proposed supplemental would appropriate, as has been pointed out, $12.7 million from the state revenue loss in general fund reserves and that's shown in table 1, page 3 of our report. i know the supervisors know this but there are two additional sup premental appropriations pending before the board of supervisors, the public defender's office, 751312 and the sheriff's department 3,458.970. if the board approves it the state revenue loss reserve lch no balance and the general fund reserve will hav

was a general contractor and others did large jobs to specialized subs. we issued the package at the end of october and the bid period was extended twice so we can answer a lot of bidders questions which were technical. we had 8 addendums all to reduce the price and to make it easier for them and get competition. the fact of the matter is that on march 7, this month we received only one bid from the general contractor, which was $259.5 million. over a hundred million more than the engineers estimated. we analyzed what was in their bid and we made inquiry and made attempts to explain their bid and because they had 4 major subs to do fabrication on this job and 4 were the previous prequalified bidders but they did actually receive bids from the 4 qualified bidders in addition to one in oregon and one in washington. when we looked at that and the type of bids they had received there was definitely competition within here. we determined there was adequate competition but the bid itself is not obviously not an acceptable price. it's not a fair price and we would like permission to enter into
